I have run a test following your instructions, however does this test
the opentype functionality, as the font you directed me to was
distributed in ttf? I have never owned a opentype font to date. Where
might I get one?

Anyway I have emailed you the source code and output pdf from my tests
(list didn't allow me to attach if i remember correctly). The test was
run on i386 and sparc64. The reulst I have mailed you are from the
sparc64 machine. It seems to look fine to me, but I must admit I have
limited knowledge of fonts.

Best Regards
